The Los Angeles Dodgers on Tuesday recalled right-handed pitcher Brock Stewart from Triple-A Oklahoma City and placed left-handed pitcher Alex Wood on the 10-day disabled list with left SC joint inflammation.
Stewart, 25, will make his 10th big league appearance of the season, with tonight’s contest at Pittsburgh being his third start. Stewart has posted a 1.64 ERA over an even 22 innings with one save for Los Angeles while holding hitters to a .203 average. This will mark his fourth stint with the Dodgers in 2017 and he has no record with a 2.03 ERA over 13-1/3 innings in four starts for the OKC Dodgers this season.
Wood, a first-time All-Star this year, allowed three runs in an even six innings last night in the no-decision and is 14-1 with a 2.41 ERA over 123-1/3 innings in 22 games — 20 of which were starts — this season. This will be his second trip to the disabled list in 2017, having missed time from May 29-June 9 with the same injury.
In a corresponding move moments before game time, the Dodgers also placed Cody Bellinger on the 10-day disabled list with a mild right ankle sprain and recalled Josh Ravin from OKC. Bellinger’s stay on the DL may be retroactive to August 20, if needed.
Ravin, 29, has made two stints with the big league club this season, recording one save while posting a 3.38 ERA over 5-1/3 innings in four relief appearances.
As it stands now, the Dodgers’ 25-man roster has ten relief pitchers, four starters, and only three bench pieces.
The club’s current disabled list count sits at 13 players.
